According to reports in Spain, Villarreal are lining up a bid for Chelsea striker Loic Remy. The 29-year old have failed to pin down a place in the first team since his move to Chelsea from QPR in 2014.

The French international was used as an impact substitution by previous managers and his future looks uncertain at Stamford Bridge after the signing of Michy Batshuayi from Marseille this summer.

The signing meant Remy have fallen further down in the pecking order with Diego Costa and new signing Batshuayi ahead of him which could hamper his playing time in the on-going season.

The player is being monitored by a host of clubs apart from Villareal as earlier reports suggest interests from the likes of Crystal Palace, Everton, Lyon, and Besiktas.

Meanwhile, Spanish club Villarreal are looking to sign a new striker before the close of the transfer window as the club has faced a major blow as their target man Roberto Soldado is ruled out for several months due to a cruciate ligament injury.

The Spanish outfit are looking for a reliable striker and given the situation of Remy at Stamford Bridge, he could be a cheaper and best option available for them as the player is looking to leave the club in search of first-team football.
